Looking at new front bumper

Im looking at replaceing the front bumper on my 2010 2door JK with the following bumper made by Rock-Slide Eng. Rock-Slide Engineering FBF-100-JK - Rock-Slide Engineering Ridge Series Front Bumper in Textured Black for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
Has anybody had any experience with them as a manufacturer and how is Quadratec like to deal with?

I've never had an issue with Quadratec, but I usually find better prices at 4Wheel Parts.

OMG!!! Thats a serious bumper!!!!! A few people on here have been complaining about quadratech with the used parts but if you have a 4wd parts store near you they price match and then you get free shipping bc they get it shipped to the store, cant beat that. good luck, your Jeeps going to look mean

That's a nice bumper, but have you seen this one?
Rock Hard 4X4 RH5005 - Rock Hard 4x4 Parts Full Width Front Bumper for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler JK - Quadratec
Similar, less expensive, and IMHO looks better. When I was considering a full-width front bumper, this was my top choice.

I've never had any problems with Quadratec, but do shop around because you can often (not always though) find a better deal elsewhere.

Take a look at the AEV bumper if you're looking to spend that much cash.

I've got the AEV front (with warn 9500 winch) and rear (with tire carrier) and couldn't be happier. Incredible bumpers!

Bringing this one back to life, did you ever get this bumper? I've been looking at it too but haven't bit the bullet

Looking at bumper made me nuts, I looked for weeks and looked at them all. I went with a Warn bumper for $689.00 it is very well made and I really liked the lowered winch mounting plate. And there are many mounting holes so almost any one's winch will fit.
